  1. So I got my cut of Bones 3 from the person I went in with, and decided that the first thing to get done would be Bonehenge.... Started by airbrushing with Grey Liner cut 50%, Then Stynylrex Black, then Stynylrez Grey, cut 50% as a Zenithal.... I then remembered how mad I got at myself for not scraping the mold lines on my DDS 2 terrain, and got busy.... Was pleasantly surprised that only the 2 upright pieces with lintle stones had anything at all noticeable.... Then the Black (Cut 50% this time!) and Grey were redone on those 2 pieces.... Pretty much plan to follow the same paint scheme that I did for my DDS 2....
  2. I'm creating a world in my LOST WORLD PROJECT. When doing this I made a project within a project. WIP's here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73979-taniths-awakening-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/ Since she would not be visible enough in the diorama alone, I made a separate thread for her. This is ALSNIA @knarthex's daughter. It all started out when the real Alsnia showed a pic of a albino snake with flowers on it's head. Things rapidly spun out of control and the project was born and merged with my own project. For the Show Off of TANITH'S AWAKENING look at this: Here is Alsnia Solo. I used Bones Sarah the Seeress 77210 for this.
  3. So I finally got tired of this guy, and basically finished him up, put him on the base and called him done.... Tried a few new things with him, such as adding an off white to the base color of his skin for high lighting, as well as the work on his "Skirt" Overall, I am certainly happy with him as a piece to be used eventually in a Frostgrave campaign... Thanks for looking! G OOpsie, WiP here June will be the Black Orc Archer, The Haminister of Truth and I poked around the catalog and came up with next months mini... 03429: Black Orc Archer in Metal 77056: Orc Sniper (Archer) For those of you that prefer Bones.... G
  4. I got a bottle of Badger Stynylrez primer in my Reapercon swag bag, as did those of you that got one, and I just tried it out on some 1/4" blue insulation foam for a project the other evening, and it did NOT eat the foam in any way, shape, or form. I shot it through my airbrush, thinned about 50% with W&N Flow improver and water.... ***For Science!!!***
  5. Not been much posting in these here parts recently, but I have been working on some stuff... in this case 3 pieces for Frostgrave treasure tokens.... Thanks for taking a look!
  6. So there hasn't been a lot of mojo around S.N.O.R.K.L.E. HQ recently, but I have been painting a little bit every night.... Scale 75 Field Grey and SS Camo Shadow 50% Field grey, Field Grey and Camo Highlight 50% on the skin GW Scorched Brown, WC Ochre 5, and some red or other for the eyes... GW Bestial Brown then VMC Bronze on the armor.... Thanks for lookin!
  7. So things were a little rushed in getting this finished a week ago, and I never did have the time to do a proper show off... And as final assembly didn't happen until Thursday afternoon..... and the results.... Thanks for all the fun, comments and following along with this!!!!!! George Forgot to link the WiP.....
  8. So, It's May the First, Time for a new Hangout Mini! Continuing in our theme of Building a Frostgrave Warband, This Month, our mini is Blacktongue, Gnoll Ranger, 03190 in metal, 77104 in bones. Now I have 20+ of the Old Ral Partha Gnolls in 25mm, so this guy, being much bigger than them, will be a Flind from Fiend Folio... On the other hand, I painted the first of my Partha Gnolls using Ral Partha Mane Yellow, so this guy needs to be different.... Going back to MMI, Gnolls have a Green Grey Fur, so I decided that I would use SC75 Field Grey 38 50% with SC75 SS Camo Shade, mixed with some Nacre mixed 50% with the aforementioned mix as my base coat, as I now tend to paint 'Dark to Light'.... So here he is with the first basecoat... Even though I am doing the metal version, the way his left arm fit into the ball and socket at the elbow, looked best in more the bones pose than the metal..... So Thanks for looking!
  9. So, Today I hosted Dilvish, Chaoswolf, and my neighbor Doug, for what we hope to be a monthly Frostgrave campaign... The table: The Deployments: Dilvish: Chaoswolf: Doug: Me It was, from my perspective, an interesting learning experience, as I lost first my wizard, then my apprentice, and 6 more of the 8 soldiers I started with..... Dilvish and Chaoswolf took more detailed notes than I did, so they will be able to tell the story better, but I went through quite a few D20s, and they all deserve to get hit with sledgehammers..... At least my wizard and apprentice survived, and I didn't lose anyone permanently, but I will be without 1 archer, and 2 thugs next game as they heal.... And I only got away with 1 treasure... I only got 90 exp, and just to gain a level, I had to choose the Laboratory option for my base to break the needed 100 points to gain a level.... I also discovered that My spell choices were not the best, and as it was the first game, the others consented to letting me change them.... Thanks guys! But it was a lot of fun, and hopefully I will do a bit better next game.... off to Koplow for a pile of D20..... And whatever Dilvish's wizard's name is, He needs to append "The Sniper" to them, as he found a 48" line of sight with minor obstructions, and killed 2 people with Bone darts.....
  10. Just discovered that these are available on you tube..... The Gamers 1 The Gamers 2 Dorkness Rising If you have not seen these, especially the 2nd one you are in for a treat!!!!! You,re Welcome
  11. So, I need to paint a ladies handbag for a figure, and it belongs to a lady of questionable virtue.... just wondering how one would go about painting it... something like this: bag is shaped like this: except no handles, just shoulder straps.... Thanks for any and all suggestions! G
  12. So whilst digging around through my 40K stuff looking for things, I found a sprue of GW's plastic ruins, and decided to assemble them and paint them up as generic terrain, hopefully to be used in our upcoming Frostgrave games.... Base coated with GW Rough Coat, a textured spray paint, sadly OOP Primed Black Dry Brushed with GW Stormvermin Fur, Codex Grey, Kommando Khaki, Fortress Grey Daubed with GW Blue, Red, Green, and Brown inks, diluted Dry brushed with GW Codex Grey, Fortress Grey, VMC Stone Grey I normally would have done a dilute Tomwise Sauce wash after the inks, but tonight whilst gabbing on the hangouts, I forgot!... Couple more coats of DullCote and they will be done... Though I may do the black wash now,,, Thoughts???? Thanks for looking!
  13. So I got the box in August of 2015, and proceeded to paint the terrain portions of the box... (WiP here) Now it is finally time to start on the main piece of the box! Nathavarr the Dragon! I spent much time last night removing mold lines.... Then scrubbing all the parts.... Hey! I am using Bones Superglue on Bones! I glued his hind right leg, and tail to the body, and will be doing some putty work after my postings tonight... As a side note, the blocks of wood with the single nails are the ones I used when I was painting Takhisis, over a year ago now.... I plan on using Blue Liner as my primer, and will be air brushing it on.... So I hope you all will follow along, because most of the initial work will be done with my air brushes.... PS I was talking with our Haminister of Trooth whilst taking pics, and we agree that if you could get 2 (or more!) of the same wings from this guy, they would likely make cool looking sails / masts for a fantasy ship!
  14. So I finished him up last night at around 2230hrs, and took pics, but by then it was to late to post.... So Here is My April Hangout of the Month Mini, the Xvart Commander: As a last second thing, I decided to give his sword a green wash as if it were venomous... Hope you Like Him! George WiP here
  15. So, Our own Wizard most Wild mentioned getting this stuff and finding that it worked for him, so I ordered a bottle of it, as I do a little airbrushing from time to time.... I spent 2 hours or so looking at videos on youtube about how this stuff is used, and decided that the Wolf Demon (77307), that I used for the Hangout Airbrush tutorials last year, would be a good test subject for it, as I was not going to jump straight onto Nathvarr... The first recommendation I followed was to spray the model with Glosscote, to protect the paint underneath. I then, again following a tutorial, I daubed the stuff on with a semi junk brush, and let it dry, I then did another coat, and this is what it looked like after it dried... (Taken at the end of my paint session last night) so tonight will see if it works.... ALSO, in one of the tutorials, the artist was coating his W&N SERIES 7 (!) brush with brush soap before painting this stuff on.... The brush I used was one that I liked to use for painting bases and such, and it is pretty much trash by now, even after rinsing often and an overnight soak in W&N Brush Cleaner & Restorer... RIP>>>>
  16. So even though I can't (wont) start painting on this guy til 1 April, I finished cutting off the broccoli, and primed him in the eternal hunt for Mold lines... (I think if I was going to actually change my forum title, "Mold Line Hunter" would likely be it....) I did seriously consider trying to thin the cape down from the 1/8" thick that it is with my dremel tool, but decided against all that work.... So there you have him, waiting for some blue paint.....
  17. So to go along with the Goblin Leader that is the hangout mini of the month for April, I decided to do a companion Xvart... He is a Gobbo from the Ben Seins sculpts, but I thought his head looked a little bare, so after cutting off the broccoli, I decided to sculpt a 'Stahlhelm' on his head.... first layer of putty.... Should I sculpt Jackboots too??? Thoughts and comments welcome!
  18. So I finished up the Oathsworn Mystic Circle and Runestones from the latest KickStarter.... Pentacle by itself: Circle with the different inserts The Runestones: All together: Was a Fun thing to paint.... Thanks for looking!
  19. You knew it was going to happen, didn't you.... My Oathsworn KS cam the other day, and I thought it might make a break from painting scales on Czaristikalian... (Nathavarr) So I dremeled the center circle a bit to make all the inserts fit, attached the pieces to handles, and primed them black.... Stay tuned for more.....
  20. The project that my friend asked me to paint in January 2016 is now done! (I actually started the week after Reapercon 2016....) WiP Pics of the Full Force (Less the 2 Cobras, that I forgot to include!) They are sitting on a special tray that my friend gave me for my birthday at Historicon, 2013. He has one just like it.... (The patch is one that I actually wore as a tanker in Germany from May 1984 to may 1986....) Situation: August 1st, 1985 "We interrupt this program for a special announcement. Unconfirmed reports from Brussels, headquarters of NATO, state that the NATO nations have ordered their armed forces to mobilize and commence deployment to their wartime positions." 2 days prior, we see the small German hamlet of Sinntal, all is very quiet on the pre dawn of a Wednesday morning... Nothing seems out of place.... (This is a 6' by 4' terrain table that I set up to take pics for this show off. These are all piece from my WW II collection, as I have not purchased any of the new 'modern' buildings....) 0400 hrs 4 August 1985 Task Force 'Meatball' C Co, 1-33 Armor, 3rd US 'Spearhead' Armored Division, Captain Calvin 'Meatball' Albondega, commanding, has occupied it's wartime deployment fighting positions.... The HQ Platoon, consisting of C66 and C65, has co located with 2nd platoon, C Company, 1-48th Infantry. This platoon was exchanged for C co 2nd plt, in the normal Army doctrine of combined arms. 1st plt has deployed to the left, 3rd plt to the right. (The company was finishing up transition training from the M60A3 tank to the new M1 Abrams tank at Grafenwoehr / Hohenfels training areas, where 1st platoon was the only platoon to have the chance to finish painting their tanks from the base color that they came from the factory in...) The Battalion mortar platoon has occupied its position in the rear are of the task force. With it's M577 Fire Direction Center. The objective at the back of the church. With a forward observer in the bell tower of the town church, his M113 waits at the base of the tower for when they need to displace... A plt of PIVAD air defense 'tracks' happens to be in the are, swapping 'pogey bait' and parts (Pogey bait is food the troops buy and bring to the field on their own nickel. Poptarts were always a good seller!) (The 4 Gatling gun equipped 'tracks behind the the 3 platoons) A pair of Cobra Tank killer tank hunters is also transiting the area when the hammer falls.... Some pics of what the Soviet Forces would see.... (wish the door mat that the fields are made from had settled down....) (I placed the camera on the table to give a 'mini's eye view') And here they are all packed up for shipment to Charlotte, NC to my friend.... Thanks to all those folks that followed along in the wip to give encouragement! TC Complete!
  21. So on the day the Haminister of trooth and I had lunch together in NYC, I had found a couple of cardboard pyramids that had been strapped to the tops of pallets full of something so that nothing else would be stacked on top... Over the past couple of nights, I have started to use some Blue foam Insulation to cover them to turn them into Frostgrave terrain pieces.... I attached the foam with spray adhesive, after making sure that the spray wouldn't eat the foam the way paint will... Here is a couple of pics of one of them... . My next step is to cut som 14" square MDF to attach them to for bases, then use spackle to fill in the gaps and blend the 'tabs' into the mdf board. I also plan on adding some Reaper gothic arches to them in the center of each side as 'entrances' , and then scribe lines in them to make the 'blocks of stone' that the pyramids are made from.... These will stand vertically at the outside edge, and have more foam put behind them to make the entrances.... Thanks for looking!
  22. So, tonight the base got tufts and snow effect, and aside from the need to cover the specks of snow on the black rim of the base, I am calling him done! He was lots of fun, and I am finding myself eager to paint more Xvarts! Thanks for following the WiP!
  23. So.... Last Decemeber while I was Xmas shopping for the pets, I ran across an AKC chew toy platypus... And, Being me, I knew that it was a DrowcedentTM in the making.... So my daughter Alsnia, knitted the scarf, we mad the hat from blue insulation foam and putty, and I did the monocle from a split ring for keys, a piece of jewelry chain, and some blister plastic. I sewed everything in place, (Be careful of the stitching!!!! as I am out of practice...) and hot glued the hat on... And it was delivered today, and I just got a pm from pcktlnt, so I can show him off now! We need to have a gathering of plushies at Reapercon this year....
  24. So I finished these up with some Secret Weapon Snow effect, and some Dullcote... Thanks for looking! WiP here
  25. So this pre cut, MDF outhouse came to me through the Box of Goodwill, Euro / UK edition.... Didn't feel much like hobbying last night, but when a couple folks joined me on the hangout, I thought I needed to do something, and my eyes fell on this.... And here is the lovely Astrid the Chronicler, much relieved..... I still don't have a painted Sir Forescale... Thanks for looking!
